Work context

The situation in Libya continues to deteriorate. The ongoing conflict continues to break down the infrastructure and systems of a country already heavily affected by conflict since the downfall of Ghaddafi in 2011. Today nearly one million people out of a population of 6.6 Million have sort of significant humanitarian need. Of that population in need only 300,000 have so far been reached in 2019; with particularly significant holes in the provision of health care (primarily for a resident population) and protection (primarily for migrants and refugees). Humanitarian operations in the country are both difficult to operate and significantly underfunded (with only 70 million dollars of the 200 million dollars requested in this year HRP now funded – and the US / EU making up 75% of that funding). In this increasingly complex environment with increasing needs, Action Against Hunger seeks to bring its’ expertise to Libya over the next year; to build an effective and sustainable presence to help the most vulnerable in this forgotten country.
